Do something fun this winter and attend the Wild Winter Farm Camp
MSU Tollgate’s Wild Winter Farm Camp, held Feb. 15-16, 2016, helps beat the winter blues.
As the weather finally changes and winter hits, it’s common for kids to get restless. Michigan State University’s Tollgate Farm and Education Center is excited to announce an opportunity that will help shake off the weather woes. Join us Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 15-16, 2016, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. for an exciting two days exploring farm life from a new perspective. Every wonder how animals stay warm? Do ducks get chilly after swimming in their pond? This is your chance to check out the farm up close and personal.
Activities will be hands-on and for some, a chance to try something new. Start your day by caring for the animals and collecting freshly laid chicken eggs during animal chores. In Garden Kitchen, prepare a tasty snack from scratch using Michigan products. Check out how wool keeps the sheep warm by exploring the science of fiber. Then bundle up and head back outdoors for a snowshoe trek in the Tollgate woods. All of this fun and that’s just the first day!
